gadhafi. those reports unconfirmed by u.s. officials. these all coming from rebels. ap obtained this cell phone video from a rebel commander saying this shows gadhafi's body on the ground. we have not been able to independently confirm that. this picture taken a rebel commander's cell phone. neither u.s. officials have been able to verify this is indeed gadhafi. nonetheless, from the capital of tripoli to strongholds across the country, celebrations have broken out across libya. moments ago, secretary of state hillary clinton spoke about what this means from kabul. >> they made very clear they recognize they have a lot of work ahead of them. they have to try to unify the country, unify the militias under a unitary command. they have to disarm a lot of people who have acquired the thousands of weapons that gadhafi had stockpiled and that they worried that, if ga daf g were still at large, he would be waging guerrilla war against them. he would be recruiting mercenaries, paying with the gold that they believe he had absconded with. so if he is removed from the picture i think there's a big

in shock. kristin dahlgren is live for us with the latest. do we know more about a possible motive for why he would enter and kill all those people in cold blood? >> reporter: good morning. police still won't say what they believe the motive to be. i have been talking to people who knew the victims here at the hair salon. they say that scott's ex-wife worked as a stylist here. they tell me she's among those who were killed. the two were involved in a custody dispute over a 7 or 8-year-old son and they were even in court this week in a routine hearing the day before the shooting. again, police say they are still investigating what a possible motive might be. they have now notified all of the eight victims' family members. we are expecting them to release the names of those victims later on today. the family though of the salon owner says that he is among those killed. i spoke earlier with a woman who had been coming here to have her hair done for 30 years. she told us about some of the shock. >> all right. kristen dahlgren, thank you. >>> tomorrow occupy wall street protesters will have to

'm thomas roberts. excited for that book to come out. it's good to have you with us on this friday. president obama is demanding an explanation as to why the senate voted down his jobs bill for a second time. now, last night the senate rejected a smaller part of the president's plan. the vote was 50/50. ten votes shy of passing. now, every republican voted against it with two democrats and one independent shoots it down as well. joining me now is nbc's luke russert. explain all this. the democrats saying they're going to bring up another part of this bill that invests in roads, bridges and more. does this prove that it would be a lost cause? >> reporter: well, thomas, for the second time in ten days, president obama's jobs bill went down in the united states senate and what this showed us last night is that it's very much impossible for any kmoenlts of this bill to move forward. you would have thoft that $35 billion for teachers and firefighters would have resonated loudly within the senate chamber. that's what the white house thought. it didn't yesterday. republicans sticking to t

for us and explain why we're not seeing the movement. >> sure, that 9.1%, we've been stuck in that range since april, so we've achieved a kind of shaky stability, but at much too high a level of underutilization. we have 14 million unemployed people. look, if you go back to the end of 2010 to about april this year, we were adding about 166,000 jobs per month on average. it was enough to take about a point on the unemployment rate, it was 10%, now it's 9%. we've been adding 70,000 jobs a month on average. it's enough to stay stuck where you are, i call it a shaky stability, because there's all these threatening head winds out there, there's europe, there's the political dysfunction that you've been talking about. if we can't get some of these plans on the table to give this job market a boost, there's no obvious reason the unemployment rate would come down any time soon. >> i want to play a piece that one of your former bosses said in an interview that's raising a lot of eyebrows, take a listen. >> the american people are dissatisfied for the state of the nation at the moment. that all by

the park themselves, that in advance of the planned clean-up. but tell us about why they were so fearful of having to leave if the city was able to get them out, using the clean-up restrictions as a way to get them to move on. >> reporter: yeah. so the situation was that when they set up shop here a month ago, the city told them they could stay indefinitely. this was not a city owned park, it was a privately owned park and mayor bloomberg said the protesters could stay here as lodge as they wanted to. then the owners of the park were concerned about sanitation, so they appealed to the city and the nypd help them temporarily move these people out so they could clean and power wash the park to address those concerns. the protesters were concerned this was a ploy to get them out for good because the owner says when they came back, they'd have to obey the rules of the park and some of the rules of the park include no camping, no sleeping bags, no tarps, no personal property otown ground, so those who have been setting up shop here for the last month would be concerned they would not be able

at these numbers and see something quite different. they use these figures to make the case that the president has failed on the economy. so really, both sides being what they want in these figures. thomas? >> certain americans have taken the tact of any part in the storm because workers have taken tremendous pay cuts just to stay employed. those laid off during ret session took a 17.5% pay cut to find work once again. peter, what needs to happen for the salaries to return to pre-y is regz levels? >> the economy has to grow from 3% to 5% a year again which it hasn't done and to do that, we have to increase stimulus or cut taxes and we have to do something about the trade deficit. american, although they spend, they don't spend on stuff that's made here and to do that, we have to address china and the china currency issue. at $85 a barrel we don't have to import oil. we can develop that. those are two big areas that if the president wants to make a difference, he can get behind china as opposed to talking about it and opening up drilling so we use more domestic oil as op posted to imported oil. >>

and joins us now. speaker boehner says president obama is overstepping his constitutional thorpt. first off, is he? what do republicans have to gain with the argument dore they continue to look like obstructionists to the obama administration? >> i'm not a constitution lawyer. i don't know how to evaluate that claim. i do know that presidents take executive action all the time. i'm sure that speaker boehner that the president is traveling from one end of the country to the other trashing republicans and accusing them of holding him back. that's behind some of his rhetoric, i'm sure. the question is whether the executive order will do anything significant to boost the economy. and i think the odds of that are not particularly good. >> when we look at the markets, the dow on track for this historic october after closing yesterday. europe looking like it's getting its act together with the debt crisis and new numbers out this morning that show consumers are spending more. john, will there be any long-term benefit to the president on this one? >> better than that the dow is up than down. better

with younger voters, with greater together. and apparently using the social media tools before to connect with college kids, also having student summits that begin next month. what are the challenges, though, in getting young americans back on board in a major way, really reinvigorating them to get behind president obama? >> in a word, jobs. young people answering the work force have been hit really very, very hard, indeed, by the lack of opportunities out there. on the other hand, you've got a whole new generation. i mean, it's only four years, but for young people, four years is a whole generation of people who maybe heard about older teenagers now in their 20s having taken part in the 2008 campaign. so they want their own experience to get involved with politics. and that was a very powerful motivation factor. not just the freshness of the candidacy in 2008, but the notion that people could get political experience. so getting them active and engaged is a motivating force for young folks. >> yeah, young voters have been did he say discounted in the past. richa richard wolf, great to s

as our united states senator, our most newly elected u.s. senator. when you then look at the president in head-to-head contests against each of these republican opponents, he still comes out on top. i think he needs to continue to drive a grand bargain because the polling data suggests that not only pennsylvanians, but also people across the country, buy into this notion that as long as there is shared sacrifice, as long as there are spending cuts and tax increases, that's what they'd like to see. that's what he's advocated. so, somehow, he hasn't sold it right, i guess is my answer. >> jennifer, how bad is that new hampshire number at this stage in the game for an incumbent president, when you consider that at the electorate? >> well, it's a bad number for him, there's no doubt about it. but in new hampshire, polls really aren't reflective of reality until very close to the primary, and then very close to the general election. voters are still shopping around among republican candidates, they're still trying to decide where they think obama is on the economy. obama hasn't articulated
